The Colors of Movie Trailers

(click for full size)

Well this is rather interesting. Box Office Quant analyzed a whole bunch of movie trailers in order to figure out which were the most common colors onscreen.  Not sure how they did it, but they have a chart, so it must be legit.

As it turns out, Oranges and Blues are the most common colors by a mile because of what…sunlight and explosions? Water and hot blue-eyed actresses? I’m not sure. But it’s really no surprise considering the two are complimentary colors and they’ve been doing this for years with movie posters.

Poor purple and green. I guess we need more Incredible Hulk movies to balance things out.
